QCity Metro is among 30 news organizations in North America chosen to participate in the latest round of Facebook Journalism Project’s Accelerator program.

More than half of the organizations chosen (55 percent) are owned or led by Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and/or other communities of color, and 75 percent focus on local news.

As local newsrooms seek to stay afloat amid a shifting landscape of digital options, the Accelerator programs are designed to teach strategies for growing reader revenue to offset losses in advertising dollars.

Among other goals, QCity Metro wants to find new ways to reward and better engage with those who support us financially via our Press Club.
